THE date for Edinburgh's All Under One Banner (AOUB) independence march has been revealed as October 6.

After meeting up at Princes Street Gardens and leaving at 1pm sharp, marchers will be heading to the Scottish Parliament.

The announcement of the march comes after tens of thousands attended the group's recent events in Glasgow and Dumfries.

Also on the calendar are marches in Bannockburn on June 23, Inverness on July 28 and Dundee on August 25.

With amazing turnouts of 60,000 in Glasgow and 10,000 in Dumfries, AUOB have high hopes that the massive show of support for independence in the capital could be their biggest yet.

Edinburgh Council will have to give their approval to an application for the march.

Sources told The National that the council is usually “quite relaxed” about political marches as long as there is no threat of violence – neo-Nazi marches have been banned by councillors in the past.

Edinburgh Council is run by an SNP-Labour coalition, and they are likely to support the October event.

The full procession route will be: Princes Street Gardens, Princes Street, The Mound, Mound Place, Ramsay Lane, The Royal Mile, South Bridge, Cowgate, Holyrood Road, Holyrood Gait, Queens Drive, House Wynd, Grounds of the Scottish Parliament.

The group have created an event on Facebook offering more information on the event, and to help promote the march – which you can view by clicking here.
